Transformative Art Installations
The Hong Seon Jang Labyrinth Exhibition Alters Mundane Materials

The Hong Seon Jang Labyrinth exhibition at the David B. Smith gallery in Denver, Colorado, showcases two unique collections curated specifically for the show, as well as a selection of his other work.

The New York-based artist traditionally forgoes the use of the usual artist’s materials of choice in favor of reworking mundane, man-made objects.

The ‘Black Forest’ collection, which Jang created as part of the exhibition, features multiple layers of overlapping, translucent tape pasted onto a black chalkboard. He makes another interesting material choice in his ‘Black Ruin’ project, which is also part of his solo show. By gingerly placing string across a canvas, the artist adds flair to his work. Both of these projects fuse man with nature through the use of non-natural materials used to convey the environment which the artist is inspired by.
